Menu Plan Monday, Simple Dinner Meal Plan

Menu plan with recipe links


This week I’m keeping our dinner simple. I’m making a dish I haven’t made in a while Spring Vegetables with Couscous and Chicken.

I’ll be using the peas from our garden in the dish. It is such an easy dish to make with cooked chicken from the freezer and veggies from the garden. The recipe is the perfect springtime meal.

My son requested hamburgers again. They are on the menu and I’m thankful I prepped hamburger patties for the freezer, which makes it so easy to make hamburgers for dinner. The homemade patties are so much better than the preformed ones from the store.

We will also be having a favorite vegetarian dish, southern fried tofu. I always freeze the tofu ahead of time and then thaw it the night before. It makes the texture of the tofu, a little more chewy and meat like.

I wasn’t sure my son would eat it, but he thinks its chicken nuggets and I don’t tell him any different. 🙂

Here’s What’s Cooking at Our House This Week


I’m always looking for new summer skillet meals that I can make without heating up the house. Some good summer dinner recipes to add to my menu plan. If you need a couple new dinner ideas for the summer, you’ll want to try this chicken recipe. It’s an easy skillet dinner that can be made in about 15 minutes. It uses leftover chicken, so you won’t have leftovers go to waste.

  1. I’m impressed that your son thinks the tofu is chicken nuggets! I wouldn’t tell him, either. I’m still working on my menu plan for the week, but think it will involve a pan of enchilada casserole, some salads and leftovers. It’s my husband’s last week of school for the year so it will involve some late school nights for him. Oh, and may I just say, your food pictures are always lovely, Shelly!

    1. I harvested enough sugar snap peas yesterday, we shared some with the neighbors. I also harvested two head of lettuce, it was so good in our salad last night.
